I’ve said I like The Rock before, this is why.

Justin Timberlake receives a gift from a ten year old fan and MY HEART MELTED.

Christmas cheer in the form of coolness.


You better watch out!

I took this last Monday while we took a trip to the city.  It was a two hour trip and I was very glad this music station (Alfa Rock)  kept streaming Christmas classics with a rock n roll twist.

Have a great Saturday!

PS – I filmed this with Instagram but after waiting six hours for it to upload, I gave up and put it in flickr.


Twinkle: Not my Christmas tree


This is part of the Christmas tree that’s on top of the chimney in this house.  Yes, chimney, in the freaking caribbean.

As I said, not my house.  My favorite part of the image is the surprise colourful bokeh to the left :)

I’m sharing this with the cool people of the Look Up, Look Down Challenge Week 69 though this is this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge.  Merging challenges wins.

Have a great day!


Tuesdays of Texture

Every Tuesday I post a photo of a texture or the use of a texture and share a detail of my part of the world.  

I invite you to join in the fun of sharing an image of the textures around you by including a link to this post in the post where you share your image (you don’t have to make an exclusive Tuesdays of Texture post!). 
You can find an image you like during the week if you don’t have one today :)

Strong roots. #texture

All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost.
J. R. R. Tolkien

My momma told me that what’s important is what’s underneath.  When we expose our roots, our true selves, and what lies there is good and true, that’s what matters.

Keep your roots strong, warm and sensible.  Let’s free them and stretch them this month so they are ready for the new year.

Thanks to all the participants of last week!  There are beautiful images here, be sure to check them out:

Paperflowers at colorpalette details of petals.

Maple bark at Miscellaneous Musings of a Middle Aged Man.

Fresh fruit, I can almost smell it!  And, building texture (whoa bricks) both (yay!) at Enjoying Life Wherever We Are.

Peepal tree from Sucheta the Scribbler is showing it’s own set of majestic roots.

Remember you can hashtag #TuesdaysOfTexture and @ me (@naramilee in twitter and instagram) and I’ll totally link you up here too :)

Have a great Tuesday!  I’m looking forward to seeing a bit of your part of the world :)

Time lapse of a snowflake’s birth.

This people walked on a frozen lake with water so clear it looked like they were freaking levitating.

Flickr featured the stream of this dude who does celebrity portraits with a very humane style and I loved some of the shots.

That’s it, have some fun!
